Vehicle Details Interior

A perfect complement to the Aventador's aggressive exterior is its modern and inviting interior. Lamborghini parent Volkswagen/Audi has done a good job of taming the bull inside with a mix of warm Italian leathers, bright and attractive LCD gauges, and up-to-date convenience features like automatic temperature control. A pair of beautifully sculpted and supportive bucket seats flank a prominent center console housing a navigation screen and Audi-like multimedia system controlling iPod, traffic data and Bluetooth interface. Outward visibility is poor, but as they say in Italy, what's behind you doesn't matter.

Exterior

If the Department of Defense commissioned a radar-evading supercar, the 2013 Aventador might just be it. Low, wide and stealthy-looking, the Aventador's highly angular and multifaceted cab-forward body is well-populated with scoops, vents and ducts. The rear spoiler and side air intakes electronically deploy as required. From its menacing low prow, to the sleek double-domed roof, foot-wide rear Pirelli PZero tires, upswept rear diffuser, arrow-sharp LED taillights and large-bore center exhaust, the Aventador LP700-4 is unmistakably Lamborghini.

Notable Standard Equipment

As you would expect of the range-topping Lamborghini, the Aventador comes well-equipped with such standard equipment as power-adjustable leather seating, voice-activated wireless phone and navigation controls, smart-key door locking, a full set of front, side and knee airbags, and much more. One interesting standard item is a lifting feature for the front shock absorbers that allows the front of the car to be raised 40mm (about 1-1/2 inches) to clear steep driveway ramps without scraping that road-hugging nose.

Notable Optional Equipment

Aside from special Ad Personum (personalization) colors and trims, park assist, a backup camera and a premium audio system, there is very little left to the optional equipment list on this $390K supercar. One neat optional touch, however, is a clear plastic cover for the engine compartment of the 3-foot-long, beautifully sculpted V12 engine – the automotive equivalent of Michelangelo's David under glass.

Under the Hood

The task of moving the 3,472-pound Lamborghini Aventador from 0 to 60 mph in less than three seconds falls to its V12 engine pumping nearly 700 horsepower. Smart all-wheel drive delivers the power to the wheels based on available traction, and electronic front and mechanical rear limited-slip differentials hook up the massive Pirelli PZero tires. Gearchanges are accomplished via a 7-speed paddle-shifted automated manual transmission with several different driver-selectable "emotional" settings. The gearbox can deliver lazy shifts in Strada-auto mode, or respond with crisper shifting in Sport-auto mode. Select the manually-shifted Corsa mode for downright violent, tire-chirping, head-banging, bull-snorting gearchanges at wide-open throttle with full Launch Control. Fuel economy, though not a great concern of most buyers, is improved this year with the addition of cylinder deactivation (shuts down one bank of six cylinders) and stop/start technology that shuts down the engine when stopped.

691 horsepower @ 8,250 rpm

Pricing Notes

Taking its place at the top of the Lamborghini food chain, the nearly $400,000 Aventador LP700-4 is the ultimate expression of the Italian supercar, as is its roadster counterpart coming in at nearly $450,000. As such, value considerations aren't as important as emotional ones. The Aventador buyer is more likely to be concerned about color combinations and availability on the handful of cars shipped to the U.S. than he is to quibble over a few thousand dollars of Fair Purchase Price. Going forward, relative scarcity and brand reputation should help ensure good resale value.
